Ah ok sorry, its your description that will be getting the cold votes. I read it as 2 beers for a fiver. Might want to make it clearer
Yes, saw those yesterday. They're basically £1-£1.25 beers in the likes of Aldi and Lidl, so decided to pass. Especially when there are some excellent 3-for-£5 deals on the £3.50-a-can craft beers at M&S.

Not sold in Lidl or Aldi. There's no comparison these are long established well known session beers £2.50 per litre vs £3.78 per litre "craft" which will only be sold until someone comes up with a daft named jazzier can.

Different beer, when & what price


Not my check-in so don't know the price or purchase date, but it was checked in yesterday. Similar beers like Spitfire are £1.25, so I'd expect this to be about the same.

You are not comparing apples with apples.

You refer to Bombardier Golden Beer & "similar" Spitfire. This deal specifically concerns the current reduced M & S price for Bombardier Amber Ale and Courage Best Bitter. The pricing (as a deal / saving) should be looked at against the current price for those brews in other retailers - nothing else

Nonsense. Bombardier is bog-standard ale (except it has added sugar, E150C colour and E405 stabiliser). Nothing premium about it. As others have told you, 4 for £5 is about the right price. But whatever...

Claptrap. I wrote Session Beer not Premium. Who is saying "about the right price" ?... an earlier contributor misread it as 2 beers for a fiver.

I bow to your superior Beerhunter ability just let me have the ingredients for Courage Best and some details of national supermarkets knocking out English session ales for £1.25 a throw

Off to sit in my garden and neck some 33cl £4.50 cans of Beltstretcher Chinook Brass Kettled IPA

Morrison currently have about half a dozen different bottled beers including Pedigree, Old Speckled Hen and Spitfire for a quid each. Bombardier is often included but apparently not this time.

So apparently not this time a quid each. To keep thread on topic are Morrisons and the other national supermarkets cheaper or dearer than this M and S promo for Bombardier Amber and Courage Best ?

Courage Best certainly is sold at Aldi.


At what price ? None at Aldi Bracknell yesterday I bought some of their very nice own brand (brewed by Marstons) Harper's Ruby Red Ale 500ml 5% for a bargain £1.09
